I take your satisfaction very seriously, and want your session to be a memorable and enjoyable experience. Below is a list of answers, tips, and next steps to ensure that your session goes off without a hitch.


When Should I Schedule My Session?

I would recommend scheduling your session at least a sixty days in advance. This allows us to conduct a pre-session consultation and find the perfect venue for your photo shoot. (To secure your booking we require the session fee to be paid in full).

I have Reached out to you. What are the next steps?

Once I receive your inquiry, I will respond within one business day. We will set up a quick five minute call to discuss our process and to schedule your in-person consult.

Do I have To Meet you In-Person?

Yes. Meeting in person allows me to provide you a truly unique full service experience. I am able to show you our amazing products to you and get to know you better so that I can capture your personality and style. During the consultation we also discuss the entire process along with your budget, and make your gown selection.

Why do you require my spouse to be present?

We require that all financial decision makers be present for the consult and reveal session. Fine art prints are an investment, and we want to ensure that there are no surprises during the process. When making such an important investment, it is imperative that your entire family loves the images you select.

Are Gown Rentals included in my session fee?

Yes! One of the wonderful things about using our services, are that each client has access to our private gown collection for use during their session. We have hand selected the finest gowns, from the finest designers from the US and Europe. Retail prices of our gowns range from $300-$1000 dollars.

Where do sessions take place?

Maternity sessions take place in outdoor locations throughout the Pacific Northwest. You have an option of four different landscapes. Urban, Rustic, Forest, or Ocean setting. (Newborns Sessions will be conducted at our studio.)

How long will my session be?

A normal session last 60 minutes, but please allow for additional time in the event we are having challenging lighting or weather issues. (Newborn Session are 2-3 hrs.)

We are awkward in Photos. Can you help us?

Yes! I will provide all of the direction during the session. I will give actions to play out, which will result in a natural and relaxed environment. It also allows us to capture those candid moments.

When will I receive my preview?

Due to the personalized nature of our business, all previews will be seen at your Premier Ordering Appointment. This appointment will be scheduled within one week after your session.

can I have all digital images including my raw files? 

Unfortunately, I do not sell RAW files or unedited images at this time. Digital packages can be purchased to compliment any print package.

can i edit the photos you took? 

No. This is outlined in your contract. I hope you have chosen Bluebonnet Photography because you love our work. Photography is an art form, and the artistic vision of the photographer takes countless hours to realize. Once your session is complete, that is when the real work begins. It will take anywhere between 12-16 hours to edit your photos. We take great care in our editing processes.  Please refrain from using filters, presets, removing watermarks, or cropping our photos from your purchased digital files. Your thoughtfulness and respect is greatly appreciated.
